In the business year 2019/20, the Metal Engineering Division completed a strategically significant acquisition for its welding consumables product segment. Specifically, voestalpine Böhler Welding Group GmbH acquired Selco S.r.l., a welding machinery manufacturer in Italy. Selco, which was founded in 1979, possesses 40 years of know-how in the production of equipment and accessories for arc and plasma welding. The company has plants in Onara and Cittadella, both Italy.
This acquisition represents the next step in the development of the Welding business segment into a full-service provider in the welding industry. The addition of welding machinery to the segment’s portfolio now enables voestalpine Böhler Welding to offer a fully coordinated combination of welding consumables and welding equipment.
